Volunteer – Bluffton Jasper Volunteers in Medicine

I joined Bluffton Jasper Volunteers in Medicine in September 2011 because I needed to do something constructive with my free time. After losing my husband to cancer I was ready to throw myself into a worthy cause. I volunteer 2-3 afternoons a week and enjoy what I am doing. I like the interaction with the patients and my co-workers. It amazes me that so many of our volunteers give their time to a cause that needs our help.

We have a complement of great volunteers running the clinic including nurses, grant writers, interpreters, active board members and the list goes on. They are generous with their time and put out a lot of effort. Of course we can use more help at all levels. The clinic is growing and will always need financial support.

Personally working at VIM as a physician has been rewarding in that it allows me to extend my experience and knowledge in a useful and meaningful fashion. It also gives incentive to stay up to date with new developments in medicine.

I look forward to more of my time allotted to the clinic and the patients we serve.
